Summary

A brilliant debut brimming with secrets, mystery and friendship, set against a backdrop of the First World War in the walled gardens of Ickworth estate.

​October 1916. Clara is sent to stay with her formidable aunt and uncle in the grounds of a country estate. Clara soon discovers that her new surroundings hold secrets: a locked room and a hidden key, and a mysterious boy who appears in the gardens only at night.... But can Clara face up to her own secrets and a war she's desperate to forget?

A thoroughly enjoyable book for all ages

This book takes me back to the favourite books from my childhood. Already looking forward to the sequel and to another adventure with Clara and Will!
